the restrictive part is the intake tube. wait to see what Fuel has to offer in ways of air boxes. I think FCI is working on one also that will work with the stock box but better intake.
Well it is actually the opposite by the testing i have done ...... the stock box is pretty big. The REAL problem is the VERY restrictive intake tube. While the box above looks good, i dont think you are going to gain any HP by adding the above air box. I will have an air box version of my intake. I have the box designed and it is in production now.The restrictive tube might be worth what? 1 whp, while a better airbox or even better no airbox combine with a better filter being worth 2-3 whp.
vs what? Lid on stock airbox or stock no lid?While the box above looks good, i dont think you are going to gain any HP by adding the above air box...
Great compaired to what?This what they got to say:
We found the stock intake tube to work great with a stock motor, and full exhaust system.
They must not have a dyno or did dyno testing. The stock tube sucks BIG time. So i would wonder what did they test to find the stock intake tube to be good?We replaced the intake tube during testing and found no advantage. We specialize in high performance air boxes. We have been in business since 1993 and have built custom air boxes for the owners of Vito's Performance, Trenga Racing, and Trinity, just to name a few.
The truth will be in the 3 - 5 HP you will gain with my intake on the dyno. Not to mention the 3rd party dyno sheets i will be posting to show that my kit makes HP.You will also gain valuable knowledge about who is telling the truth about their products. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
I will offer my parts at a competitve price and the feed back will come with the PROVEN HP you will get. The box they make is nice ..... NO QUESTION. Do yourself a favor pull of the stock intake tube off and look at it. You will see it is a joke. A new intake tube is needed and if anyones says different they have not tested with a correct intake tube on the bike.If you are in a position to buy both and try them, I will give you a great price for your feedback. Positive or negative. We want to hear it all.
I understand and i am not knocking their stuff. Again it is a nice box, but it will not make the power mine will make NO QUESTION. It is not possible with the stock crappy intake tube. Our bike has gone from 40 HP to almost 50 HP untuned with a Dasa pipe, FUELATV intake and a power commander ........ 10 HP DYno PROVEN increase.Don't get wrong Fuel, I'm pretty sure I'll buy from you in the near future and you are doing a great job researching the best for our bikes, I'm just trying to find the best bang for the buck here.
I will have maps ..... it will just take alittle more time.Also I'm waiting to se if he will offer a map for it, that would help me make a decision.
I 2nd that /\ /\ /\ /\ .... Fuel put me down for 1 of your intakes when ya get them done....Don't get wrong Fuel, I'm pretty sure I'll buy from you in the near future and you are doing a great job researching the best for our bikes, I'm just trying to find the best bang for the buck here.
